Summer Employment Opportunities

Here at Ockanickon we depend on one of the best trained and dedicated group of Scouts and Scouters to run our camp and program each and every year. Being able to serve on this camp staff really is the opportunity of a lifetime. It offers an unprecedented chance to lead, teach, and work with 3,000+ Scouts and to work towards a goal with a team that is just as excited to be here as you are.

This staff only operates with the help of the troops attending OSR. We hope that, as leaders, you will encourage any of your Scouts who you think will be a good fit to apply so that we can offer as good a program as you are used to seeing. Without you and your Scouts, Ockanickon would not be nearly as successful as it is.

The 2020 season dates are:

  • Mandatory staff training weekends: May 29 – 31, 2020 and June 12 – 14, 2020
  • Staff week is June 15 – 20, 2020
  • 7 program weeks starting June 21, 2020 through August 8, 2020
  • Shutdown August 8, 2020 through August 12, 2020 

Interviews for the 2020 camp season are set for the weekends of November 8th, 2019 or February 28th, 2020. Applicants will receive a letter in the mail inviting them to an interview weekend.
